Are we getting the kitkat update on the hd
Most likely the form of 4.4 that you will receive will be in the form of a Port that is taken from a Nexus device, that is most likely based off of CM10.3 or higher CM10.4 if 4.3 is ever released.
But do expect that Motorola Droid line should receive Kit-Kat 4.4 before last years HD line or the year priors Razr line unless there is some form of leak (but don't hold your breathe waiting for a leak.)
Nope. We'll be lucky if we even get 4.2. There's a big discussion and a lot of pissed off people over this over at the Motorola RAZR HD forums.
In my eyes, its like this: The Razr HD and Maxx HD have the same internals, and run the software created at the time "fairly" well, the more "updates" we get the buggier and slower the phone will be.
For some reason, this doesnt apply so much to iOS systems, but I do know it has a bigger impact on Androids.
Why? A lot of "finger pointing" at Verizon or Moto, but when it comes down to it, this is a major let down.
When Apple announced iOS7, I said to myself there is no way I can probably get this new OS on my 2 year old iPad2's... sure enough I was able to.
And while I dont care for it much, the point is, a 2 year old device was able to upgrade to a SIGNIFICANTLY different OS, while this POS phone that is a year old cant upgrade to an OS thats slightly different?
Starting to lean more and more towards Apple. Sick of Androids inconsistency.
